In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

John 1:1 KJV


Who created God? It is an age-old question that has plagued all those who like to think about the big questions. Christianity claims that God has always existed. Is this idea even possible? The Bible makes it clear in many places that God is outside of time. He is eternal, with no beginning or end, He is infinite! He also knows all things, being infinitely intelligent. Our finite minds find it hard to comprehend that before the universe was created, God existed alone. We also know that the Holy Spirit was present before we were created. In the Bible it says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 KJV  Since God, by definition, is the creator of the whole universe, he is the creator of time.

Christianity’s Answer:

Christianity answers the question of who made God in the very first verse of the very first book, Genesis. “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 KJV  This verse tells us that God was acting before time when He created the universe. Many other verses from the New Testament tell us that God was acting before time began, and so, He created time, along with the other dimensions of our universe. Here are some verses from the Bible that show God telling us about before time began: “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:” 1 Corinthians 2:7 KJV  “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,” 2 Timothy 1:9 KJV  “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;” Titus 1:2 KJV  “To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” Jude 1:25 KJV  The idea that God created time, along with the physical universe, is not just some wacky modern Christian interpretation of the Bible.


We understand that when God began creating the physical universe, He made the heaven and the earth first. But who created God? My son, who is an unbeliever, asked me this question in one of our many discussions about God. My answer to Him was the same as it is now. No one created God. Nothing created Him. He has simply always been. It says it in the Bible here, “The eternal God is thy refuge” Deuteronomy 33:27 KJV  He is called “the eternal God.” The very first definition for the word “eternal” in Webster’s Dictionary is “without beginning or end.” That’s God. He is without beginning or end. He has always been. He will always be. Everything else has a beginning and an end. We are all the created. He is the only Creator. Psalms 90:2  KJV says, “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” That God has always existed, is not easy for anyone to comprehend. Our world was created by none other than the eternal God, who is from everlasting to everlasting. And His first act of creating the world as we know it was to make the heaven and the earth.


Have you given your life to Jesus Christ ? If not, now is the time to do it. Just open up your heart to Him and ask for forgiveness and He  will forgive you of your sins. He loves you and wants you to have eternal life spent with Him. So why not open your heart because He is the One that died on the cross and shed His blood to pay the penalty for your sins so you could have that free gift of eternal life. Amen

      Thanks Amanda, I did finally chip away a little sin off of him the other day. And I didn’t even start the conversation !! He was just curious and started asking questions and I told him some of God’s Word. I just hope it will sink in and he will keep asking.
